Vasco da Gama Aquarium is located in Algés in the borderline of Oeiras and Lisbon western zone. It was officially opened on May 20th 1898 to celebrate the 4th centenary of the discovery of the maritime route to India. Remodelled a few years ago, it is both a museum and an aquarium. Here you will observe some species that could not be kept inside a conventional aquarium, because of its rarity or dimension. There are animal and vegetable species from all over the world, coming from brackish, salty and freshwater habitats. Part of the collection evokes the ocean campaigns of King D. Carlos in the beginning of the 20th century in the Portuguese coastline.
